About Katherine Hawes

At Digital Age Lawyers, Katherine focuses on making legal business information understandable and actionable for both small business clients and individuals.

While Katherine focuses on family and estate protection legal issues she has primarily differentiated Digital Age Lawyers as a virtual law firm with a focus on Social Media law,  policy,  compliance for small business, robotics, artificial intelligence – the core of our Commercial law services and education.

The ‘Academy for Digital Business’ is the vehicle for Katherine’s passion – to make the law simple, understandable and affordable for small business owners.

Her natural talent, intellect and humour combine to attract and retain people to her speaking engagements as she creatively steers people to success.

Katherine’s belief that anything’s possible paves the way for creative thinking for innovation – both of which require a boldness to have fun and uncover what you do not know!

I have seen Katherine speak and have been involved with her assisting a business who was being bullied on-line. She acted immediately and the owners were grateful and relieved. A First Class down-to-earth solicitor who genuinely cares.

Debra W

Had a fabulous meeting with a lawyer yesterday! Yes, a LAWYER!! Tears of laughter whilst discussing some pretty important but boring stuff. Law needn’t be scary, boring or confusing if you have the right lawyer. Thank you Katherine Hawes. I’m looking forward to working with you.
